Being treated for a life threatening condition, like cancer, is often very demanding of your time and energy. It’s not simply a medical condition, but something that affects every aspect of your life and every aspect of who you are.
Healing emotionally from a cancer is its own beast. It’s not easy to measure how you’ve been impacted by the experience. The steps towards healing are not always easy to define.
I recognize that while you want to feel better, you might be overwhelmed with how to begin.
With all of this in mind, I’ve designed a program that meets you where you are at, and gives you a method for finding your way through to the other side. We can meet in person or online.
I’ve designed a DIY art therapy protocol that you can replicate and access on your time, when you need it. Whether it’s a moment of intense remembering and feeling, or in the middle of the night.
You don’t need to be a skilled artist to benefit from the practice, although it’s totally normal if you feel performance anxiety. I will help you through that, and you’ll be surprised by the results you get!
This art therapy protocol helps you heal your body, mind, spirit and self. Each session helps you to identify what is going on inside, so that you can break down your healing into manageable pieces. We then take that awareness and represent it through color, shape and form.
Once you’ve accurately translated the experience onto paper, we work through it, rebuilding your connection with your own unique healing wisdom. When you come out at the other end, you feel healed from the experiences of facing a life threatening illness. You feel whole again.

I had thought about doing traditional support groups or traditional therapy, but just never did it. Stephanie explained what she was doing and it sounded like something that would be great. I’m not the least bit artistic, in fact, very far from it. But she gets you comfortable with the materials you’re working with before you start to get your expressions out on paper. You get comfortable with just doing it.Testimonial from an individual client, diagnosed with breast cancer before 40
